Union – Interstate Accident Victim Identified
Officials have identified the victim of last Thursday’s interstate crash in Union.
At 1:45 p.m., 46-year-old Eric Poblenz of New Hampshire was driving on I-84 West when he crashed into a state vehicle near Exit 73. The collision forced his vehicle into the center median/guardrail. Poblenz sustained critical injuries and was pronounced dead soon after. The driver of the Department of Transportation vehicle incurred minor injuries and was taken to Hartford Hospital for treatment. The incident is still under active investigation. Witnesses are encouraged to contact State Police as soon as possible.
The causes of many interstate/highway accidents can be challenging to determine. It’s in these situations where witness reports will prove invaluable. Obviously, responsible parties have to be stopped from causing further harm. Less obvious are the avenues that victims or their next-of-kin can explore to help them cope post-crash. These options are particularly relevant if negligence is involved in any of these situations.
